Look for the PUPS program in 2022!

The PUPS program is the official training program for the Tri-Shark Classic Triathlon and Duathlon. We offer a 12-week training program (2 ability levels) designed to prepare you to complete either the Tri-Shark Triathlon or Duathlon held on June 6, 2020. The Tri-Shark Triathlon is a sprint triathlon featuring a 600 yard swim, 13 mile bike and 3.1 mile run. The Duathlon features a 2 mile run, 13 mile bike and 3.1 mile run. The race is held at Comlara County Park, Hudson, IL. This program is designed for those who want to do their first triathlon/duathlon or are beginners and want to do better. This program does not cater to advanced athletes. The Pups program is based at Illinois Wesleyan University.
